2005 Baden

2005 Konigschaffhausen

2005 Königschaffhauser Steingruble Pinot Noir Trocken, QbA Baden

This is the second bottle of this wine I've drank this year. Amazed the first time, didn't disappoint the second. Bought for dinner at Ken's.

Light red cranberry in colour. Beautiful nose, excellent varietal characteristics. Earthy and dusty, with pure red fruits and bramble. High acidity in the mouth, quite austere and achingly dry on the finish. Absolutely delicious. Elegant and subtle, with a weightlessness and transparency.

We need to see more German pinot noir being imported.
